Episode Seventy-Three: The Belmez Faces & Chase Vault, Plus Phoenix Poltergeist

It’s a three-pronged paranormal extravaganza on this episode of 13 O’Clock! First up, on our “news of the weird” segment, we’ll be discussing a recent news story out of Phoenix, Arizona in which a family claims to be the target of a poltergeist who throws things around their home and writes in Yiddish on their walls. Then we’ll be tackling the main topics of the episode, and going into two of the most famous paranormal cases of the 20th century: the mysterious Belmez Faces of Spain, and the infamous “moving coffins” of the Chase Vault in Barbados. Park your caskets on the smiling tiles and tune in for episode 73.

Episode Twelve: The Enfield Poltergeist

On the even dozenth episode of 13 O’Clock, Tom and Jenny have an in-depth and “spirited” (heh) discussion about what is probably the best-known poltergeist case of modern times, that of the Enfield Poltergeist in 1977. The story of the Hodgson family and their bizarre encounter with the unexplained (or their shameless hoaxing, depending on your perspective) has been the subject of numerous documentaries, books, a TV miniseries, and the recent horror film The Conjuring 2, but you haven’t really lived until you’ve heard your favorite podcasters’ take on it.

Episode Seven: The Mammoth Mountain Poltergeist

On this episode, Tom and Jenny discuss the case that started it all. Jenny was primarily a horror writer until Tom told her about a horrifying poltergeist experience he had endured in 1982, when he was thirteen years old. Objects moved in impossible ways, creepy noises like human voices came out of thin air, and an eerie presence seemed to watch him and his family at every turn, and followed them to a total of three locations. Tom gives a rundown of some of the phenomena, using current pictures of one of the locations in order to jog his memory. Tom and Jenny also discuss the poltergeist activity that rekindled at their own home more than thirty years after the original incidents. If you’d like to know more about the case, Tom and Jenny wrote a book about it called The Mammoth Mountain Poltergeist, and they’ve also been on a few podcasts talking about the details, such as here and here.
